Critic Reviews for Attentat 1942
While it fails at being a game, Attentat 1942 succeeds at being an experience. It sacrifices all aspects of player choice and interactivity at the expense of delivering a compelling and interesting story. It can be praised for exploring an aspect and setting of a famous conflict that most games wouldn't touch on.
Attentat 1942 is a full-motion video game that hits you hard with a harrowing story and dozens of facts from the era. Although, the mini games are slightly lacking, they do create some tension for an overall exciting and interesting experience. A must play if you have an interest in history, and want to learn more about the German occupation of Czechoslovakia.
Attentat 1942 provides an insightful history lesson into the events of the Czechoslovakian occupation, while its cinematic interviews prove a crucial gateway into understanding the impact those events had on human life. It doesn't provide the interactivity of Her Story or This War of Mine, but it's pleasing to see the game format being used to educate.
Although short in duration (my meticulous approach lasted two hours plus), and it really needed more to the game for the kind of story that it was telling, Attentat 1942's poignancy managed to stir me on several occasions, and its ending in particular was touching.
The game is very thin in the sense that there is little else to it. But the mystery is compelling, and I enjoyed the simple-start-to-complex-finish of the story. Everything is done with polish and style. The real actors play their parts well and realistically: Grandma is stern and annoyed when you ask for stuff from her, and everyone acts like the situation is one of seriousness even if they speak to you like a parent to a child.
